We're Maryn + Margo

We are mamas and birth workers who decided to do birth differently– and bring others along with us. We are kind, fun to work with, and great at (lovingly) calling people on their bullshit when necessary. With 11 children and 16 years of midwifery between us, we’ve learned a thing or two along the way, and Indie Birth is our space to share it all with you.

Wow, I’m feisty in this one! After a moving update and a nice card pull to share with you, I’m off…have you ever thought about the distinct differences between how midwifery and obstetrics are viewed in the world, and how most midwives have agreed to very little autonomy?

This is NOT a new topic for me, but I felt a renewed interest in riling all of you wanna be midwives out there into choosing authentic truth over compliance.

What kind of world do we live in when licensed midwives are treated like ignorant children, and their clients too? I am hoping this episode inspires you to question this narrative and mostly DO SOMETHING that will further a vision for birth and midwifery that is based on power and integrity.
